Easter Bush Campus update
Feb 18, 2020
Oberlanders have been leading a multi-disciplinary design team delivering the site masterplan, infrastructure and landscaping strategy for the University of Edinburgh’s world class veterinary research campus at Easter Bush in Midlothian. The campus is home to the world famous Roslin Institute, Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Medicine, the National Avian Research Facility and the Large Animal Research & Imaging Facility (LARIF). Oberlanders have led the site masterplanning strategy, supported by Goodson Associates, KJ Tait Engineers and Wardell Armstrong providing Civil/Structural, Utility Services and Landscape Architecture services respectively.
The latest phase of development has seen the completion of the south east campus perimeter road with associated utility connections and the creation of the first phase of the core paths strategy providing a critical pedestrian link between the new LARIF facility and the rest of the campus. This strategy will ultimately lead to the establishment of a new central landscaped green space connecting all phases of development on the campus. Future phases of work will include further roads and utility services infrastructure, active travel links, jogging trails and the creation of a new Campus Hub for the University’s trades teams.
